  • Wie verbindlich ist das Wissen vom Gene Editing' Ethische Reflexionen
           zu einem aktuellen Normierungsprozess
    • Abstract: Zusammenfassung Aktuelle Untersuchungen zum Gene Editing an menschlichen Embryonen zeigen große Erfolge bei der Korrektur vererbbarer Krankheiten und treiben die Grundlagenforschung sowie die Präimplantations-Gendiagnostik enorm voran. Was von Forschungen dieser Art aus ethischer Sicht zu halten ist, ist dagegen weniger eindeutig. Ein Blick auf den aktuellen Diskurs zeigt, dass diese Entwicklungen sehr kontrovers diskutiert werden und eine Einigung darüber, ob sie vorangebracht werden sollen oder nicht, keineswegs in Sicht ist. Zum Zweck der Orientierung und auch besseren Positionierung in der aktuellen Debatte befasst sich die vorliegende Untersuchung zum einen mit der Art des Wissens vom Gene Editing sowie dessen epistemischen Grundlage und zum anderen mit den ethisch-normativen Überzeugungen, an die die Befürworter und Gegner in der ethischen Bewertung des Gene Editing jeweils appellieren. Dabei zeigt sich, dass die Überzeugungen, auf die sich die Befürworter stützen, der speziellen Art dieses Wissens und seiner epistemischen Grundlage stärker Rechnung tragen, während das von den Überzeugungen, auf die sich die Gegner berufen, gerade nicht zu erwarten ist. Diese Einsicht in die Struktur der Debatte erlaubt es, die verschiedenen Argumentationsweisen in Beziehung zu setzen, ihre jeweiligen Perspektiven einzunehmen und auch ihre blinden Flecken aufzudecken.

  • Still a Misty Mountain: Assessing Parfit’s Non-Realist
           Cognitivism
    • Abstract: This paper takes stock of Parfit’s latest defence of his meta-ethical view, non-realist cognitivism. In the third volume of On What Matters, Parfit gives his account a new—as I am going to show: conceptual—spin. Also, quite surprisingly, he takes back much of his earlier criticism of rival theories and claims instead that he and his opponents, Allan Gibbard and Peter Railton, are climbing the same meta-ethical mountain on different sides. Mainly focusing on the new spin in Volume III, I argue for the following four claims. Firstly, non-realist cognitivism can easily be accepted by all those believing in the irreducibility of normative concepts (not: facts). Secondly, Parfit succeeds in avoiding Mackie-style queerness objections. However, thirdly, once we fully grasp the conceptual rather than metaphysical core of non-realist cognitivism, it becomes clear that the view, if successful, would accomplish much less than Parfit’s talk about irreducible, non-natural normative facts may have previously suggested. Finally, I argue that the conceptual spin generates a problem regarding one of the crucial pillars of non-realist cognitivism, namely the status of normative facts as objective or mind-independent. It remains entirely unclear how the view could account for this status. All in all, non-realist cognitivism doesn’t clear up the mists covering the heights of the meta-ethical mountain. It is still a long climb to the summit, and in order to reach it, we have to answer many questions Parfit doesn’t address.

  • „Was hülfe es dem Menschen, so er die ganze Welt gewönne und nähme
           Schaden an seiner Seele'“
    • Abstract: Zusammenfassung Es gibt eine uralte Idee, nach der es – nicht nur, aber vor allem in ethischen Dingen – mit dem, was hier und jetzt geschieht, nicht getan ist. Die Gegenposition macht spätestens dann ihr Recht geltend, wenn sie die wichtige Frage aufwirft, was dieses „Jenseits“ denn mit dem zu tun hat, was hier und heute geschieht. Im Text wird versucht, diese beiden Positionen anhand der Betrachtung einer bekannten Bemerkung aus der Heiligen Schrift miteinander zu vermitteln, also zu zeigen, wie das, was hier und heute geschieht, schon von sich aus auf jenes Andere verweist, und wie dieses wiederum nur verständlich wird vor dem Hintergrund des Hier und Jetzt.

  • Moral Philosophy and the ‘Ethical Turn’ in Anthropology
    • Abstract: Moral philosophy continues to be enriched by an ongoing empirical turn, mainly through contributions from neuroscience, biology, and psychology. Thus far, cultural anthropology has largely been missing. A recent and rapidly growing ‘ethical turn’ within cultural anthropology now explicitly and systematically studies morality. This research report aims to introduce to an audience in moral philosophy several notable works within the ethical turn. It does so by critically discussing the ethical turn’s contributions to four topics: the definition of morality, the nature of moral change and progress, the truth of moral relativism, and attempts to debunk morality. The ethical turn uncovers a richer picture of moral phenomena on the intersubjective level, one akin to a virtue theoretic focus on moral character, with striking similarities of moral phenomena across cultures. Perennial debates are not settled but the ethical turn strengthens moral philosophy’s empirical turn and it rewards serious attention from philosophers.

  • Introducing Epiphanies
    • Abstract: I propose a programme of research in ethical philosophy, into the peak-experiences or wow-moments that I, following James Joyce and others, call epiphanies. As a first pass, I characterize an epiphany as an (1) overwhelming (2) existentially significant manifestation of (3) value, (4) often sudden and surprising, (5) which feels like it “comes from outside” – it is something given, relative to which I am a passive perceiver – which (6) teaches us something new, which (7) “takes us out of ourselves”, and which (8) demands a response. Often the correct response is love, often it is pity, or again creativity. It might also be anger or reverence or awe or a hunger to put things right – a hunger for justice; or many other things. It may be something that leads directly to action, but it may also be something that prompts contemplation; or other responses again. Since epiphanies are what I call a focal-case category, not all of the conditions listed above have to be fulfilled by all instances of epiphanies. In order to allow the reader to get a better grip on which range of phenomena may count as an epiphany, I examine in some detail several examples from literature, in particular from works by Murdoch, Hopkins, Wordsworth, C.S. Lewis, and by James Joyce.

  • Die ethische Selbstspaltung bei Kant und Husserl in der Herausforderung
           moralischer Kommunikation
    • Abstract: Zusammenfassung Ausgehend von der Beobachtung, dass moralische Kündergestalten sowohl Faszination als auch Anfeindung auslösen, gehe ich in meinem Aufsatz der Frage nach, wie sich die ethische Selbstspaltung, die in den transzendentalphilosophischen Ethikansätzen Kants und Husserls aufgewiesen wird, in der Konstitution eines moralischen Gemeinwesens durch kommunikative Akte auswirkt. Nach einer Darstellung der Selbstspaltung bei Kant und Husserl wird ein kurzer Blick auf das Verhältnis von passiv vorgegebener und reflexiv gestalteter Sozialität geworfen, um das Verständnis der Selbstspaltung im sozialen Kontext nachvollziehen zu können. Von diesen theoretischen Erwägungen ausgehend, lässt sich die soziale Spaltung in Beziehung zum Risiko moralischer Kommunikation setzen, deren Akteure in Konflikte mit der passiven Einstimmigkeit geraten und durch Machtverschiebungen gewaltsame Reaktionen hervorrufen. Andererseits macht das personale Risiko der Tat-Forderung als einer besonderen Form der moralischen Kommunikation auch die Apodiktizität des transzendentalphilosophisch erwiesenen absoluten Sollens in seiner sozial unmittelbaren Konkretion sichtbar.

  • Die Ambivalenz der Indifferenz in der modernen Gesellschaft: Marx und
           Simmel
    • Abstract: Zusammenfassung Marx und Simmel gehören zur Tradition der Moderne, die seit Rousseau und Hegel die moderne Gesellschaft für verschiedene Phänomene der „Entfremdung“ kritisiert. Während der junge Marx noch eindeutig „Entfremdung“ negativ bewertet, analysiert und bewertet der reife Marx des Kapitalbuches Entfremdungsphänomene als differente „Verdinglichungen“ und „Vergleichgültigungen“ und bewertet diese Indifferenzen kontextspezifisch positiv oder negativ. Ihm folgt Georg Simmel, der besonders in seiner „Philosophie des Geldes“ Indifferenz als Signatur der modernen Gesellschaft bestimmt und für ihre negativ bewerteten Auswirkungen positive Kompensationen aufzeigt und verfolgt. Der Aufsatz skizziert Marxens Analyse und Kritik von Kapital-verursachten Indifferenzen und verfolgt dann Simmels mehr kulturphilosophische Diagnosen von gesellschaftlichen Indifferenzen an den Phänomenen „Lebensstil“, „Ästhetisierung des Lebens“, „Tragödie der Kultur“ u. a. mehr, die alle auf die Frage hinauslaufen: Warum gelingt der Übergang von modernen Befreiungsprozessen durch Indifferenzen zu neuen Bindungen nicht „vollständig“'

  • Against Moral Mind-Independence: Metaethical Constructivism and the
           Argument from Moral Phenomenology
    • Abstract: Metaethical constructivists have proposed many arguments against mind-independence moral realism. In this paper I resume the constructivist critique against realism on the grounds of considerations stemming from moral phenomenology. My claim is that constructivism, in contrast to moral mind-independence theories such as moral realism or quasi-realism, fares better in accounting for the phenomenology of moral practice and discourse. Given the importance of phenomenological investigation for metaethical theorizing as such, my argument shows that there is good reason to prefer constructivism over any kind of theory that endorses the mind-independence of morality.

  • Behavior Genetics and Agent Responsibility
    • Abstract: Recent evidence from psychological science and genetics suggests that genetic influences underlie all behavior as well as the most worrisome social inequalities. This may be considered to call into question traditional conceptions of agency and agent responsibility. They could be thought to be undermined if gene-environment transactions were sufficiently potent in influencing behaviors. Here we identify the theoretical parameters that require investigation and the conceptual challenges to agent responsibility that arise from research in behavior genetics. We (i) introduce the empirical basis of the discussion, (ii) identify the particular questions that arise from considering the connection between behavior genetics and agent responsibility in the context of the legal system, (iii) bring into focus the general challenges to agent responsibility, and (iv) outline a potential resolution.

  • Why only the commissioning parents should undertake parental duties in
           surrogacy cases'
    • Abstract: The introduction of in vitro fertilization (IVF) results in a separation of sex and reproduction which has generated enormous ethical debate (Lauritzen 1993). Surrogacy makes this situation more complicated by bringing a surrogate mother into reproduction. A surrogacy case may involve five individuals (in addition to the surrogate child). These are the commissioning couple, the gamete donors, and the surrogate mother. Hence, a surrogate child may have up to five parents, including biological parents, commissioning parents, and a gestational parent. The question is which of these people should undertake parental duty' In terms of the acquisition of parental duty, there are three accounts. They are the biological connection account, the causal account, and the consent account. In this article, I try to argue that only the commissioning parents should undertake the parental duty for the surrogate child based on the latter two accounts. I do not apply the biological connection account because the biological connection account fails to explain one’s parental duty, which I will show in the following sections.

  • Coercing Compliers to Do More Than One’s Fair Share
    • Abstract: Is there a duty to do more than one’s fair share of solving collective problems' If there is, can those who do less than their fair share coerce others to do more' These questions arise urgently in relation to the problem of refugee protection. The fact that various states host refugees to a dramatically different extent is due to a range of factors but the most prominent one is that, on the whole, states devote their differential capabilities to the aim of not hosting them. When some states fail to host – or otherwise assist – as many refugees as they should, must other states do more than their fair share in order to solve the problem of providing refugees with an appropriate place to live' I examine what I call the conservative, moderate and responsive answers to this question. I defend the responsive view and argue that there is a duty to do more than one’s fair share here and that such a duty is always enforceable.
